We have a new dog in the house.
Her name is Skeeter, and she is a seven-year-old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. In a few days Skeeter will be going to live with Kish’s Mom, who was heartbroken when her longtime canine companion, Effie, died a few months ago. Our hope is that Skeeter will be good company and help Faith get over her loss.
Skeeter seems like an ideal choice for this important assignment. She weighs less than 20 pounds, likes people, enjoys sitting on laps, and has a sweet and gentle disposition. I make the latter observation based on the fact that Penny impolitely gobbled up Skeeter’s food, and Skeeter didn’t really seem to mind.
